Today we continued to work on a project I’m calling:
“I can teach a 4th grader!” where students are working on creating their own lesson plans to teach a struggling 4th grade student how to solve different kinds of problems with fractions.
Today students completed their lesson plans and began to make a poster to display all of their work.
On Monday we will complete the posters (I will be sure to post them!) and then teach mini lessons to other classmates. In the future, I would love to see if we could get some visitors (4th grade-adults) to come be taught by these fantastic 6th grade students!
Here is the homework due Monday: May_9 HW
Here is a video about fractions (I find these on youtube.com so feel free to look up better ones!)
Have a great weekend!
* Reviewed how to find the percent of a number
* Played Ratio/Rates/Percent Jeopardy!
* Took a short quiz
Remember to find a percent…
convert the percent into a decimal or fraction
(See yesterday’s videos for examples)
Homework: Percent Math Face Blank Math Face
* Graphed linear equations with fractional slopes
* Reviewed concepts like y-intercept and slope
* Watched another fabulous video to help us remember that slope is rise over run!
(my phone is being tricksy today and won’t let me upload photos)
So until then,
here are some videos about graphing linear equations
And here is the way to remember what slope is!
No homework today!
See you tomorrow!
* Found the percent of a number!
* Ordered lunch at “Larry’s Lunch Place” and found the total bill with tax and tip
(tech difficulties with pictures uploading today)
